2 days: Camel Riding School and Trek

Two days are best to gain confidence in riding camels. The first day involves instruction and the second day a closely supervised trek. An overnight is very pleasant in the camel school camp with a green olive garden, shaded sitting areas, good sleeping rooms, ecotoilet and washing area. An evening of star gazing can be added.
